A foundation gives you a solid base to build upon and is the first formal step in molding your pup into a good bird dog. In the simplest form, a bird dog needs to know three behaviors; go with you, come to you, and stand still. We will show you how to have your dog walk calmly beside you (the onset of having your dog go with you in the field), introduce your dog to birds, develop points of contact for cues, work your dog on a check cord including pointing and backing exercises… and much more.
Understanding your animal is the key to success in any training. At each seminar Rick concentrates on reading every dog’s body language and understanding his canine nature. Rick will spend time talking with you, both in group settings and individually. You and your dog will be given the opportunity to work together completing exercises under Rick Smith’s guidance.
Rick Smith is wonderful as a clinician, trainer, contact and gun dog training expert! If you have specific questions please reach out to Jennifer Broome, JBroome@qkdogs.com
Cost: $400 per person, and you must pre-register and pre-pay to reserve a space for you and your dog. Observer spots available $200 per person.
